What do you think is the best bang for your buck for a dual water bottle holder on a tri bike is???

Been looking around and have seen a lot of different options but not sure which actually work and which are no good.

Dang. Wish I would have seen this before I dropped the dough on my Profile two cage system.

One standard cage on your frame, and one metal cage zip tied between the aero bars.

this. although in my case i can fit two cages on the frame. and i third up front if i was so inclined. 

technically you could apply some electrical tape to your frame and zip tie a cage under the top tube. that would be pretty accessible too. never seen anyone do that before though...

I personally like xlab turbo wing. One of the main reasons was when I started my weight was an issue so I was able to adjust the position of the bottles as I got smaller.

I also use in those the oasis hydration system

the only problem I have with that is it is not possible to refill the bottles on the course without stopping. So I always fill those and every time I ride through an aid station I get a fluid, drink as much as I can in the 1/4 mile or so the station is and then throw the bottle.

I'm an turbo wing user. I like it. It holds my CO2 and spare tires too. I really wanted to try an aero bottle but I heard that it can cause digestion issues during the run since you sip down air as well when drinking in aero position. A lot of the pro use aero bottle system, so I'm sure they get used to it but I did not want to risk any GI issues during my IM, even if it made me 1-2 minutes faster by being more aero.

During the race there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange bottles, so I'm thinking about going with the aero bottle and Gatorade bottle and fill up as necessary. What should I do?

When people think of hydration in the aero position, the first name that comes to mind is the Aerodrink from Profile Design. I was expecting a pretty quick and breezy review of this water bottle.

Rocket Science Sports has applied its hyper-technical approach to designing a water bottle. The result is a water bottle with dimples similar to those on a golf ball.
